Slow Down… 7 comments

How is it November already? I feel like the older I get, the faster time passes by… I need it to slow down.

    At 56, I’m very familiar with this feeling. Wasn’t it just August?? *blink* (Holly)

  • It was explained to me once that time seems to go faster as you get older, because your concept of time has changed. When you’re 5, a year is 1/5 of your life, but when you are 30, that year becomes a much smaller fraction of you life. This can give us the impression that life continues to speed up as we get older.

    • You know, that makes perfect sense to me.

    That’s exactly how it goes. Never slows down. Hubs thought being semi-retired, he’d finally have time to do the things that need to be done…not so, because time speeds up and passes more quickly wth each year. It’s better not to think too far ahead but take it one day at a time and live right now, today, or we’ll miss today. Just a thought..

    • Thank you for sharing. It just feels like everything is happening so quickly. When we were kids time just went by so slowly… The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas seemed to stretch on forever, now it feels like it all happens in the same month.

        I agree, Daenel. I used to savor the weeks before Thanksgiving and the weeks before Christmas and it seems like there’s no chance to do that in recent years. I miss that and I’m wondering if there’s something I could/should change to get that back or is that just the way it is now? On the flip side (sort of) I’ve noticed that when I estimate how long it’s going to take to complete a task or project, it generally ends up taking longer than I thought it would. Other people have acknowledged they have the same problem…time is a funny thing, isn’t it?
